Design Tips: Stools are fun for extra seating


Holidays! what fun! Hopefully your house is ready and you've got your shopping started. Mine isn't, I haven't started... but that's not stopping me from looking forward to spending time with family and friends.

Extra seating is always a challenge to provide. You can only have so many sofas and armchairs in your house, and folding card table chairs andspare lawn chairs justwon't cut it.

Why not add some great stools and ottomans that are fun colors, super useful and sculptural too? Pull them out when you need them, store in a corner or under a side table, or even as the side table!

Interior Design Magazine put together a wonderful photo montage of famous designers and some of their favorite stools, "Cool for Stools" in their Market Tabloid edition of the printed magazine, published October 31, 2011, pp 114-131.

Check out the article "Cool for Stools" online as well!

Until next time!
